I might have believed in such a utopian ideal when I was eighteen, Maka ... thirty years on then, I'm sorry, you want to play in the house you pay the rent or you're out on your ear.
Now that's an idea I could get behind, deportation and seizure of assets for non-payment of taxes. More than a little rough on private citizens but fabulous for getting corporations to toe the line they otherwise ignore.
Yeah, it's pie in the sky and it's not going to happen for a long time. People have a lot of growing to do...starting with myself. It takes integrity to live without having people in costumes waving guns in everyone's faces. THAT my friend, the whole world is short on as of this moment.
That said, I would be happy with as small of a government as possible and some basic property rights. I don't know how else we are going to throw the thieves and murderers off of the levers of power. I do know that we can't go asking government to solve the problems that it caused. We don't have that much control of the system. That's 90% of what we talk about here in the study.
When I was young and fresh and liberal, I had faith that the government could be turned around and reformed into something beneficial to humanity. Now, I think I see the nature of it.
